Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

I love pretty book covers! They can definitely entice me to read a book I probably wouldn't have been quite interested enough in otherwise. Or make me more excited for a book I already wanted to read. Or make me want a print copy, just so I can look at it whenever I want. So, as I think I've said before, this is a post I really look forward to each year. I included some runners-up, but I...

I've got some more holiday book reviews! I know, I know, I've done a lot of Christmas posts this year, and I might still do one or two more quick reviews, but I'll be getting back to the usual stuff soon.

Bookish Tag Post: Christmas Book Covers Tag [Original]

I wanted to do something Christmassy and simple and fun today since Christmas is less than a week away. A few years back, I did a Halloween book covers tag, so I thought I'd do one for this holiday too. My tags are chill, so if you want to join, the only rule is to give me credit by linking back to this post! Some of the topics are difficult, so if you want to skip them or replace them or do your...

Book Recs: 10 Christmas-Themed Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books (4)

I know I already did one of these SFF Christmas books posts this year, but I have just SO MANY books written down, and each year I find more, so I have to do more than one post a year in order to try and catch up! And for this one I decided to gather up a bunch of the mlm romances I have on my list. (If that's not for you, don't worry, there are links to the other posts at the bottom, and they...

Quick Reviews: Satan Claus is Coming to Town // Deck the Demon // Have a Hellish, Lousy Christmas // Wishing on a Dream // Building on a Hope

Since it's December, it's time to post some holiday book reviews! I read some of these last December, some of these this December, and I enjoyed them all. The first three are all in one series that features different main characters in each book, and the last two are in a different series, though none are marked as a series on Goodreads or Amazon. (Well, one is also part of a collection sort of...
